The Apple M1 chip takes Mac mini, the most versatile, do-it-all Mac desktop, to a whole new level of performance. With up to 3x faster CPU performance, up to 6x faster graphics, a powerful Neural Engine with up to 15x faster machine learning capabilities and superfast unified memory — all in an incredibly compact design.* So you can create, work and play on Mac mini with speed and power beyond anything you ever imagined.

 

Small chip. Giant leap.

It’s here. Our first chip designed specifically for Mac. Packed with an astonishing 16 billion transistors, the Apple M1 system on a chip (SoC) integrates the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, I/O and so much more onto a single tiny chip. With incredible performance, custom-engineered technologies and industry-leading power efficiency1, M1 is not a next step for Mac — it’s another level entirely.

 

Speed and responsiveness

The M1 chip and macOS Big Sur work together to make the entire system snappier. Mac mini wakes almost instantly from sleep. Everyday things like flipping through photos and browsing Safari are faster. And your hardest-working apps all have access to the power they need.

 

Fits in. Rocks out.

With its compact size, incredible performance and wide array of ports, Mac mini is perfect for a surprising range of uses. And with the powerful M1 chip unleashed within its 19.7-centimetre-square frame, you never know where you’ll find a Mac mini hard at work.

 

Connections and expansion

With two screaming-fast Thunderbolt/USB 4 ports, two USB‑A ports, HDMI 2.0, Wi-Fi 6 and Gigabit Ethernet, Mac mini is up for anything and everything. And now you can configure Mac mini with 10Gb Ethernet for up to 10 times the throughput of the previous generation.

 


Thunderbolt/USB 4

Transfer data at up to 40 Gbps.20 Charge and power external devices. Connect one external display up to 6K and a second with HDMI 2.0 up to 4K.

 

8-core CPU Max power, mini footprint.

M1 packs astonishing speed and power into Mac mini. The 8-core CPU delivers up to 3× faster processing performance than the previous generation2 — all while keeping its iconic 19.7-centimetre-square design.

 

Incredible chip in. Unbelievable graphics out.

The 8-core GPU in the M1 chip is the most advanced graphics processor we’ve ever built. And it brings the world’s fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer to Mac mini9, with a gigantic 6× increase in graphics performance. That’s an insane amount of power — all in an incredibly compact enclosure.

 

Machine Learning

16-core Neural Engine. It’s the brains of the operation. Machine learning (ML) brings task-smashing speed and automation to video analysis, voice recognition, image processing and more. And the M1 chip brings a 16-core Neural Engine and full stack of ML technologies, transforming Mac mini into an ML powerhouse.
